Palm GPS Navigator - Smartphone Edition

3. Conclusion

logo

Overall Conclusions

This is a very, very impressive package. Everything works as it should. The GPS receiver is very accurate and very easy to set up. The software is the most powerful and easy to use I have ever tested.

The only thorn in the side of this package is that Palm chose to use a Bluetooth GPS receiver which makes using a Bluetooth headset or car kit impossible. I tried the software with a hard wired GPS and was still able to use my Bluetooth car kit for phone calls and it worked great.

I would hope that in future planning, Palm will give the user an option for hard wired or Bluetooth use.

The bottom line is that if you want a Bluetooth GPS receiver and the absolute best software package for the Treo, and you are aware of the limitations of Bluetooth use - buy this package.

If you are a Bluetooth headset or Car kit user and you want to drive with GPS guidance - be forewarned - you will lose your headset/car kit connection if you connect to the GPS receiver.

Pros:

  • Accurate
  • easy to use
  • long battery life
  • easy one handed operation of software

Cons:

  • Bluetooth connection on Treos allows for either GPS or Headset connection - not both
The New Palm GPS Navigator with TomTom 6.5 software can be found at www.palm.com for US$349.00.
